Re: Is there a way to get the old Windows games on a modern PC?

Launch it on a virtual machine it's actualy the best way, i think. Either that or get some old hardware to run it on - perhaps a laptop as they take up less space and you can easily replace the hard disk with an SSD (possibly via some adapters for 2.5" IDE), and once you've got it installed take an...

Re: Is there a way to get the old Windows games on a modern PC?

Re: Retro Gamer eMag Load 3 NOW ON SALE!

is it not time to bring out emag load 4 ?.
I was thinking just the same thing -- I'm planning on moving house soon and I can't really justify moving boxes of magazines so I'd rather get the DVD and sell the printed back issues...

Please please please make eMag Load 4!
